Rich Text Editor Component

Displays a field that allows for users to type text and format it with a variety of style options. Output is saved as HTML. To get the raw character output, designers can use the Appian function fn!stripHtml() on the output. HTML output can be passed into Send E-Mail node or document generation smart services. Note that not all formats supported by the Rich Text Editor component may be supported by e-mail or document generation. 

fn!richTextField() features include:

  • Allows for size validation
  • Allows for adjustable height
  • Allows for read-only / editable view
  • Supported font formats: "header", "font", "size", "bold", "italic", "underline", "strike", "script", "color", "background", "link", "align", "indent", "list", "blockquote", "code"
  • Designer control over the allowed formats
  • Supports keyboard shortcuts for indenting and lists (Version 1.0.12+)

Supported Browsers: Chrome, Firefox, Edge, IE11, Safari, and Mobile
